A Trip to the Shops this Christmas?

Winchester's pavements are a disgrace and the fault lies clearly with the local Highways Authority, Hampshire County Council. In ten years of Conservative control of the county we've seen matters get worse and worse.

In the picture I'm pointing out one of many tarmac patches in Winchester's High Street. Tarmac patches scattered among stone paving slabs. Tarmac patches that sink and trip unwary pedestrians. Tarmac patches that just look ugly on the main street of an historic city that relies so much on tourism.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg! Dangerous and unsightly pavements are simply not acceptable wherever they occur. Winchester Liberal Democrats have now launched our "Trip to the Shops" campaign to coincide with the Christmas shopping rush. If you support our call for the county to take action on dangerous pavements please sign our petition at http://www.triptotheshops.com. You can also use the website to report dangerous pavements anywhere within the Winchester City Council area. Let's try and take the "trip" out of shopping in Winchester!
